“Why Volcanoes Explode, Insights from Mineral Inclusions”

By Dr. Alexander Lloyd

The behavior of volcanoes is controlled by the composition and physical properties of the lava.  The talk is based on the author’s research on melt inclusions and “crystal clocks” in volcanic rocks and illustrates the connection between mineralogy and volcanology.

The speaker is a Columbia University Science Fellow and a lecturer in the Department of Earth Environmental Sciences.  He is also a visiting scientist at the AMNH.

Door prize will be given.   All attendees are eligible.

Free mineral samples will be offered to all attendees.











Our 2016 meeting dates are June 21, Sept. 13, Oct. 18, Nov. 15 and Dec. 13
